Ministry of Music
The music ministry at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi is rooted in the traditions of the Roman Catholic Church and dedicated to excellence in the selection, preparation, and ministry of sacred music.
As ministers of liturgical music we strive to:
- Foster full, conscious, and active participation of the People of God through a variety of musical styles drawn from the great treasury of our Catholic Church.
- Draw all present at the Liturgy into the sung proclamation of the Word of God.
- Inspire the prayer of the gathered assembly by sharing our time and musical talents.
The Cathedral Basilica music ministry consists of a variety of choir members, cantors, instrumentalists and accompanists:
The Children's Choir ministers at the Saturday 5:15 pm Anticipatory Mass during the school year. (Sep-May)
The Coro Hispano ministers at the Sunday 8:00 am Spanish Mass
- The SATB English Choir ministers at the Sunday 10:00 am English Mass.
- The Contemporary Choir & Ensemble minister at the Sunday 12:00 pm LifeTeen Mass
- Cantors are rotated to minister at the Saturday 5:15 pm Mass (during summer) & at the Sunday 5:15pm Mass.
The music ministry welcomes singers of ALL levels and instrumentalists who wish to share their time and talent with our vital community here at the Cathedral Basilica. Come join the fun and meet new people!
